Tamahome | 6393 comments He's talking about readers that just want a constant flow of words, no matter what. I know that doesn't apply to anyone in this group.

Jenny (Reading Envy) (readingenvy) | 2898 comments It also seems to be about people who only read one genre or read what people *cough, Oprah, cough* tell them to. I agree with stretching your limits, and I like what the author said about reading middle of the road books - still good, but not hyped. Sometimes I start out resenting a hyped book though, so then the author has far more to prove to me.
